The Outer Worlds looks awfully colourful in new “launch” trailer.
“Launch” is in quotes, of course, because Obsidian’s new first-person RPG doesn’t actually release for another week. That said, we understand the impulse; this spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas, due out Oct. 25, can’t get here soon enough.
The new trailer shows off a flurry of brightly colored biomes, while space pirate companion, Ellie, sets the scene.
“Look who it is: The Stranger who came out of nowhere and now has everyone talking. Some people want you to be a savior, a shining beacon of hope,” she says via voice over.
“Those people clearly haven’t met you yet.”
From there, the trailer shows off The Outer Worlds’ first-person action, while posing the question the game will offer players: “Who do you think you are?”
After a few early accolades spin up on screen, Ellie reminds would-be players: “Remember, whatever happens out there… it’ll all be your fault.”
Is that a threat or a promise (of an exciting choice-driven narrative)? Decide for yourself.
